Holy crap, y'all

Roger Ebert just linked my post about the "I write like" meme.

Many of you may not know this, but I went to film school, and he is one of my personal heroes, so this...well, it gave me butterflies in my tummy.

For those of you who've just found my journal, welcome!

I write here, and at antagonia.net, where you can read all of my comics, and Dreamwidth if you prefer that service to LJ.

Please feel free to friend me! Many of my posts are public, and I do talk a little about media and culture, although mostly I draw comics. I also post cocktail recipes and things. It's a bit of a hodgepodge. I can't promise I will friend back, but I will always try to engage in discussion with you when I can.

If you want to know more about me, I'm the Associate Comics Editor at King Features Syndicate, so I read and talk about comics pretty much all day long. I draw comics in my spare time and sometimes sell them at indie comic shows! I live in New York and am in the process of moving to Queens. And I like chickens.

For friends and others: take a look at the new comments people are adding! I wanted to let you know that there is more discussion going on, and it might be more than I can engage with on my own!

I'm still sort of going 'roger ebert roger ebert roger ebert' over and over again in my brain.

Not really at the moment! I read a lot of indie stuff, web stuff, and newspaper strips!

Holy crap!

HOLY CRAP!

I mean, you totes deserve it, but... HOLY CRAP.

Tea = Awesome, clearly.

Heck, this meme thing was reported on by the AP! Unfortunately, the AP article didn't nearly touch on any of the valid criticisms you brought up.

It got reported a lot of places where no one criticized or questioned it. Which was disappointing to me, that people whose job it is to be incisive about these things weren't really doing that.

I'm tired of saying "you're awesome" over and over again, but you really are. :P

Thanks. I feel a little funny with people complimenting me for this, though, because I didn't do it to get a prize. I saw an issue with something and felt like it was a good point for discussion. I'm really happy that other people feel the same.

Okay, that's sort of epic. Thumbs up!

Also, I don't know if you, or anyone else here has read this tidbit about the meme, but it makes things a little more interesting, I think.

That tidbit is VERY interesting.

;_; Never forget us little people who knew you before you were internets famous.

Who?

Hahaha seriously I don't think this is going to burn up the internets or anything, I've just been getting a bunch new comments

:O I'm going to have to do some bragging about my friend Tea.

I made this icon exactly for reasons like this

HOLY SHIT! :D GO TEA! :D

Holy fuck, Tea! Margaret Atwood, Roger Ebert -- who next? Ahaha, my first reaction was "OMG Roger Ebert has maybe seen a list that I made, eeee!" But this is really really awesome!

I know! It is crazy! The only problem is it's kind of brought the WhiteMansplainers out of the woodwork.

Wow, congrats on the linkage!
